Big Bend National Park, Texas






Narrowing down pics from "Big Bend National Park", Texas was not easy. Let me tell ya. We have tons. We did lots of hiking, taking in the sights & we just marveled at the view. It's spectacular there. It does take a while to drive there, such a low part of Texas. & we all know TEXAS is huge!!! so you might as well enjoy it while you are there. We were there for 3 days. They do have gasoline, but we brought in all our foods & lots of water. I'll never forget our trip. SO so so AMAZING AWESOME!!! 

The Rio Grande is not GRANDE, or grand ...it is tiny in my opinion. talking side 2 side, maybe when it is floods it does get to the GRAND sizing? maybe that is when the name came about? So much more smaller than I would have ever realized. I do wonder how it got it's name? So so strange. (1st shot.)

So happy to get a good shot of the road runner. One of my most favorite birds ever & wish list to capture one day. CHECK! (last shot.)

Not getting political or whatnot, but I have no clue how they would think to even start/begin to put up a wall here? The area is so massive. I must admit I didn't know how close Mexico and the United States are to one another. It is within spiting distance. You could just walk out into the water and you were there.


Please enjoy this vlog for that day. Thank you kindly for stopping by. Enjoy your day!!! Beth ( :

Interesting looking place. I love that bird photo.
Looks amazing, Beth. And sounds like the trip of a lifetime! I think everyone is intrigued by Trump's vision of a wall! Er - when you say you didn't realise Mexico was that close, it does share a border with the USA..? :-)

It is beautiful countryside. It's good that it was set aside as a national park.

Beautiful scenes. The Roadrunner is trying hard to not be seen,but alas,he failed.:)I remember driving over the Roi Grand and thinking too that it was not that big a deal.

Big Bend is on my bucket list.

I love your roadrunner pic. When I worked in west Texas I saw roadrunners kill rattlesnakes a few times so they are my heroes.

Hello, sounds like another great trip and visit Beth! I love the roadrunner. Texas is a huge state. Enjoy your day and the week ahead!

Nice shots! I think the river used to have more water. I have read somewhere that water is diverted upstream for irrigation.
Tanya Breese said…

We had so much fun when we went almost twenty years ago!

Great photos. It looks like a nice place (but probably hot) to visit.

Roadrunners ROCK!!! They are so smart . . and fun. . . and, they can keep you good company . . I saw plenty of them when I lived in Arizona (going to school.) I
Until now, i have never hear anyone suggest the Rio Grande wasn't Grande . .

What? You are everywhere! Everywhere at Once! You are some kind of magic, i think . .

I like your kind of magic.

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …

Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin

"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
